As near as I can tell, stairs do nothing. they seem to act as just another floor tile, and do not align well, though a 2 x 2 set of them gives the appearance of a platform.
My wife and I gathered information on stairs; unfortunately, given that they seem to have no apparent practical function at the moment, I don't recall that data off the top of my head. I'll have to get the data posted when I get an opportunity. No doubt Stairs will have a greater function when Rogue Legend 2 is released; IIRC multi-level buildings are a planned feature.

Nope. It's in the works for RL2 as I understand it, though.

I couldn't tell you, but kassoon (HelpIMadeAGame) has been putting updates on his site; I need to check those out my own self, especially since I sprung for Alpha tier access in the Kickstarter...
There is a development forum on reddit, and backers of the RL2 Kickstarter have access to it. There isn't a similar page to my knowledge here at the RL wiki, nor do I know how often kassoon visits this wiki (if at all).
I have asked Kassoon in one of my emails to him, and he said that stairs are cosmetics....
